BOOST YOUR HEALTH WITH INCA BERRIES
Inca berries, also called golden berries, originate from the Andes but are nowadays globally cultivated in tropical and subtropical areas. They are in the same family as some other South American plants, including tomatoes, potatoes, and eggplants. This plant family is also known as the nightshades.
Inca berries were originally used against diseases and disorders such as hepatitis, asthma, malaria, rheumatism and dermatitis.Their nutritional value is extremely high. They are rich in protein and packed with vitamin A, B2, B6, B12 and C. Furthermore, Inca berries contain thiamine, or, in other words, vitamin B1. This is a vitamin that is essential for your energy levels. It is involved as a coenzyme in enzyme reactions that make sure energy is released from carbohydrates (sugars). Vitamin B1 is also needed for the proper functioning of the cardiac muscle and the nervous system. Moreover, it contains phosphorus and calcium which are crucial for strong bones. And, last but not least, Inca berries contain many bioflavonoids. These are bioactive substances that give your health an extra boost. So, that’s another nice perk!
